Model of Care
Integrated Care Management
First Choice VIP Care Plus' Model of Care is an Integrated Care Management Approach to health care delivery and coordination for dual-eligible (Medicare and Medicaid) individuals.
The Model of Care is a program that involves multiple disciplines coming together to provide input and expertise for a member's individualized plan of care. This plan is designed to maintain the member's health and encourage the member's involvement in their health care.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires providers who care for our beneficiaries to annually participate in and attest to completing our Model of Care training. Annual Model of Care training is also a First Choice VIP Care Plus contractual requirement for all participating providers. This required training can be accessed in any of the following ways:
- An online interactive Model of Care training module: Model of Care Interactive Training Module.
- Providers may contact their Account Executive for on-site Model of Care training, attend a local provider training.
- Receive or request printed Model of Care training materials from Provider Services at 1-888-978-0862 or call your First Choice VIP Care Plus Account Executive.
- Providers may find information on the Model of Care and the annual training requirement in the Provider Manual (PDF).
